10 Things to Know About IACP 2015

To help you get ready for the 2015 IACP Annual Conference and Exposition we have put together a quick list of ten things to know about IACP 2015.

  1. McCormick Place West Building is more vertical than horizontal – but don’t think there won’t be a lot of walking! The meeting room locations and Exposition Hall will keep you moving.
  2. If you haven’t attended an IACP conference before, make sure you attend the First-Timers’ Orientation in room W180 on Saturday, October 24, from 8:30 am – 9:30 am. This orientation will help you get the most from your conference experience.
  3. For those interested in attending religious services while attending IACP 2015, there are many beautiful, historical churches to be found in Chicago! Here is a good place to start: http://www.choosechicago.com/articles/view/PLACES-OF-WORSHIP/114/.
  4. There are a lot of great networking events held during IACP 2015. Enjoy time with other law enforcement leaders as you experience everything IACP 2015 has to offer!
  5. If you are bringing a spouse or loved one with you, make sure they check out the new Companion Track. This track is specifically for families of law enforcement officers and consists of four sessions that discuss issues facing law enforcement families.
  6. Be sure to visit IACP Central in the central concourse – learn about additional ways to get the most out of your IACP membership!
  7. While you are in the central concourse, don’t forget to VOTE on Monday, October 26, from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. Participate in the process of running your association via electing Board Members and approving amendments to the IACP Constitution.
  8. Your best options for food on Saturday are the food court on Level 2 of McCormick Place West and restaurants around the Convention Center. Starting on Sunday, there are multiple restaurants (Little Italy, Overlook Café, and International Food Court) in the Exposition Hall.
  9. IACP Staff have red stripes on their name badges – feel free to ask us any questions you may have! If all else fails, head to the IACP Operations Room (W474AB). IACP Staff will help you with whatever you may need.
  10. Chiefs’ Night – a Summer Concert Themed event – will be conveniently held in Hall B of McCormick Place North (right next door to McCormick Place West!) on Monday, October 26, from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm.
